Popped Culture: Disturbing Interpretations of Cartoon Characters


Los Angeles-based digital illustrator and artist Dan LuVisi is out to ruin your childhood’s most beloved cartoon characters. In his dark and disturbing series “Popped Culture”, Luvisi turns child-friendly pop culture icons into gruesome , trashy, and definitely not child-friendly characters.

“I was inspired by my childhood nostalgia, growing up on Disney and Nickelodeon cartoons,” explains LuVisi. “But what my intentions were to do, was combine that love with the dark underbelly of Hollywood and how it corrupts some of its many actors and actresses.”

Check out some of his work below. We promise you, you will never look at Sesame Street and The Simpsons the same way ever again.
